Noah and Claire have been with us for six days while their parents are chaperoning the senior trip to Florida. This is with the class of seventeen that lost one of its members, Tyler, in a tragic car accident in February. We have been praying for a time of spiritual growth, unity and healing among these students. (see the blog post A Legacy of Life and Love)
We have had great weather all week in Iowa, while the travelers have had nothing but rain in Florida. We have also had a wonderful time with our grandchildren. Claire turned one in April and Noah turned four last Friday. Life has been very different at our house, but I wouldn’t trade it for anything! They are both the littlest and the biggest blessings in my life right now. So the things I am thankful for this week are:
Peanut butter and jelly
Big, slobbery, open-mouthed baby kisses
Papa, who is adored by both and always willing to play or lend a helping hand
Giggles, love pats, and peek-a-boo
The heart of a child revealed through night-time prayers –such simplicity and faith!
